What's a bear to do when a human has a polar-izing effect?
When Vicky accidentally slides into the side of a polar bear, she doesn't expect to fall in love. Eaten yes, perhaps used as a chew toy, but become the object of a bear's affection and lust?
Crazy! Almost as crazy as the fact the polar bear turns out to be a man. A sexy man. A man who growls, and roars and does everything he can to chase her away.
Only to come back.
Gene only has one thing on his mind, vengeance, until Vicky crashes into his life.
Poor Gene. After the pain and betrayal he suffered in the war all he wants is revenge against the brothers who left him behind. But he's confused when instead of wanting to punish him for his evil acts, they offer him forgiveness.
Who does that?!
As if that weren't annoying enough, the cutest geek he ever met--with caramel kissed skin and wearing the sexiest dark rimmed glasses--won't leave him alone. Or more like, he can't seem to stop following her.
And it isn't just because someone is out to hurt her.
He wants her. But does he want her more than vengeance?
Welcome to Kodiak Point where the wildlife might wear clothes, but animal instinct rules the heart.
I am so loving this series! Eve Langlais is quickly becoming a favorite!
What I thought of this book.
This is a series that you really need to read in order because there are continuations from one story to the next. In Polar Bared we get to find out more about Gene. In the first two books Gene has been a real ass about things. He blames his fellow ex-soldiers/friends for the torture he endured because the thinks they left him behind. They thought he was dead or they would never have left him.
Even though he has been bad it’s nothing that is not redeemable and in book two Boris told him he forgave him for what he was trying to do. It really grates on Gene’s nerves because he doesn’t want their forgiveness he wants revenge. Then he meets Vicki who has wondered off into the freezing cold and he rescues her or does she rescue him? He tells himself he is just going to help her back to her camp, but he can’t seem to quit thinking about or or checking on her.
Then they find out someone is trying to kill her and at first he thinks it’s people after him but they soon find out Vicki is really the target. So then as much as he wants to get rid of his Pima (Pain In My Ass) he can’t seem to let her go.
Gene is riddled with so much guilt and pain and a heart full of revenge on those that left him that he doesn’t think he is redeemable and he doesn’t think anyone can love him.
Vicki is pretty clumsy and faints at the sign of danger, but for some reason she is drawn to Gene. She is not all skin and bones as she is a little plump which I find nice when it seems like a lot of other novels portray skinny girls. I love how being around Gene and the others in Kodiak Point that she grows and becomes more strong and doesn’t faint all the time.
The books in the Kodiak point series are just fun, snarky and hot and I love them all! Polar Bared is probably my second favorite one so far in the series. There is still a threat out there that is not Gene and I can’t wait to continue the series and see what will happen next! 🙂
If you love paranormal romances then I am sure you will fall in love with the shifters of Kodiak Point.
Chandra Skyye is not my favorite narrator but she is not real bad either. She does well on both male and female voices but I wasn’t fond of her voice for Vicki as she seemed way to whiny. I am getting use to the narrator after the third book.
